Summer Semester 2020: Apply Now

From applied philosophy to physics or mathematics – The University of Bremen is now accepting new students for the coming semester for 2 bachelor’s and 15 master’s degree programs. Applications can be submitted from now until January 15, 2020.

Applying Philosophy to Current Issues

Tom Kobrow is a first-semester-student of the master’s degree in Applied Philosophy – and he is impressed: “I am reading Applied Philosophy (M.A.) because it gives me the chance to apply the extensive philosophical knowledge to society-based issues: How do societies work? How does the parliamentary system work, for example? What role does our education system play? Tom Kobrow completed his bachelor’s degree in politics and is interested in society-based connections. Based on the fact that he wants to dive deeply into this topic, the Applied Philosophy degree is exactly the right choice for the Bremen native. “I can bring my own ideas into each seminar and then develop them further with my lecturers.” It is not yet clear what he would like to do professionally later in life. Tom Kobrow can imagine working in different areas. Alongside an academic career, it may also be a job in the media, politics, or administration.

Not Always Easy But with Great Successes

“I always found math fun at school,” explains Ayleen Wilcks, who is a math student in her third semester. “There is no other subject which offers such great moments of success.” The degree is not always easy but it is exactly this point that brought her closer to her fellow students. Moreover, she tells me that the supervision is very good: “We receive great support within the faculty. Everyone knows everyone and the familiarity makes a great deal of things easier. You can’t become lost as quickly as at a large university.” Ayleen Wilcks, who comes from Lower Saxony, also chose the University of Bremen because “the natural sciences are well-positioned here. A great deal is also done to ensure that no one ends their degree prematurely.”

Good Supervision in Physics

Noemi Tamme, a fifth-semester-student of Physics (bachelor’s degree) can also confirm this. The student came from Hessia to Bremen because the courses on offer at the University of Bremen won her over: “The University of Bremen is not huge. It is easy to make contact with others. The supervision in the faculty is great. For example, there is an introduction module where you can meet new people who, most of the time, are looking for new friends too. The learning groups for the mentoring of the first semester students are also helpful.” Noemi immediately liked the city. “I have found that Bremen is a young city with many cultural offers. I am very happy here.” In terms of physics, she is very interested in environmental physics and sustainability. “It is very current: It deals with research that can improve the world in which we live.”
